The Pixel 3 has a "soft touch glass back" while the Pixel 3a has a polycarbonate body - the difference is small.

In addition, the cameras also have the Google artificial intelligence function, while the phones have more efficient batteries, giving up to seven hours of use for a recharge time of 15 minutes, or up to 30 hours with a full recharge.

Google Inc.'s newest smartphones - the Pixel 3a series - went on sale in Taiwan Wednesday after the US -based tech giant unveiled the new phones in Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco overnight.

Specifically, if you buy an unlocked Pixel 3a you can pick up a $100 gift card, essentially bringing the price of the devices down to $299 and $379, respectively. The larger Pixel 3a XL has a 6-inch screen and costs $479.

Those are real sacrifices, and it's worth keeping in mind that some Pixel 3 users have experienced notable performance degradation over time.

When it comes to the processor, Pixel 3a carries Snapdragon 670 which is a year old processor, and that is how Google managed to keep the price below $500.
